Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven Lyrics

Artist: Alison Krauss
Album: I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Once upon a time there lived a man and his name was Isaac
He walked with God both day and night but he didn't wanna die
He cried, oh Lord, please let me live, death is close I know
God smiled down on Isaac and gave him fifteen years to go.

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don't wanna die
Well, I long for the day when I'll have new birth 'cause I love the livin' here on earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.

--- Guitar Instrumental ---

When Jesus lived here on this earth he knew his father's plan
He knew that he must give his life to save the soul of men
When Judas had betrayed him her father heard him cry
He was brave until his death but he didn't wanna die hey.

--- Mandolin - Fiddle Instrumental ---

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don't wanna die
Well, I long for the day when I'll have new birth 'cause I love the livin' here on earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die...
